Lucy Clark Will Not Apologize by Margo Rabb’
Sixteen-year-old Lucy Clark has just been suspended from boarding school. Suddenly without a place to stay for the remaining three months of the semester, she’s sent to live with a cousin in the West Village neighborhood of New York City. Her new job: to care for Edith Fox, an elderly millionaire, and help her tend a secret garden in the middle of the city. But Edith has another task for Lucy—Edith believes someone is trying to murder her, and she enlists her young assistant to help protect her.
Can Lucy prevent Edith’s murder and save her life? Or is there no murderer at all, and Edith simply losing her mind?
Part coming-of-age story, part mystery, and part modern day Secret Garden, twists and turns abound in LUCY CLARK WILL NOT APOLOGIZE as the heroine starts her life over, finds her voice, and attempts to unravel the puzzles of her new world and her own heart.
